    My Cure for the Summer Time Blues, Tranny Cooler + GOOD Copper Radiator

    As many of you doubtless have seen, I found a second 2524984 radiator this past March, entirely without prior intent while extolling the merits of this particular radiator AND its rarity to my Better Half.

    What are your favorite brands for heater cores and blower motors? I'm going to want both soon.

    Seasons' Greetings Moparians! Gertrude's blower motor came back to reluctant life only a month after we started driving her last Fall, though the core then held up and served us.

    What's better, the Hayden 2747 or 2797 fan clutch?

    Greetings again Moparians! Now that I've got my shiny new Cold Case radiator, the NEXT item to upgrade is my fan. I bought and ran a Hayden 2707 last spring, but removed it just over a month ago and returned for the time being to my 6 blade straight steel fan to insure that plenty air is being...

    Best water pump for a B block in the desert?

    Greetings Moparians! I'm confronting again the issue of pulling and replacing the water pump housing on Mathilda before the worst of the summer heat comes on, and figure if I should upgrade the pump itself, THIS is THE time for it. I've been reading and have found that the aluminum housing I...
